Poetic Metal

Teresa Kiplinger is a studio jeweler, a poet, and a noted graphic designer.
She explores themes of legacy and loss in her
evocative, wearable stories and modern memento mori.
Inspired by imagined elegies, fragmented memories, and ephemera,
her haunting jewelry conjures notions of
lost reliquaries dedicated to unknowable souls.
